Slugterra: Slug it Out 2 is a match-three game where the player and character Eli Shane confront different enemies with slug teammates. Depending on the slug's energy, you can fire powerful projectiles with different properties. Additionally, as you progress through many levels, the power of the slug will gradually increase, allowing you to perform many special attacks.
Characters and modes have been updated
Slugterra's latest update includes newly updated characters and exciting new game modes. There are skins for some teammates that you can use against other players on the character side. The newly updated mode has the same gameplay as the previous one. The difference here is that other players are your opponents.
Take on the slugs in a battle of wits
The player takes on the role of Eli Shane, who is friends with slugs in Slugterra who become energetic and fire powerful projectiles. Players will therefore use different types of ammo to win against their little friends. Furthermore, players will experience straightforward gameplay similar to multiplayer.
Your slugs must build up energy and power over time before they release their power. In order to win the deep game, you will need to match as many match elements as possible. You can also identify which elements will give your slug energy by looking at elements with portraits of the characters. You will see more energy as you match more elements.
Your energy level will be displayed on the left side of the screen. You will be notified by an energy bar and an energy line of your energy level and the intensity of your bullets. You will see more bullets of the same type but larger if you accumulate more mana and the hit mana line is greater than 1. A glowing line will be a requirement for you to fire a standard bullet.
Take your slugs to the next level
A unique feature of Slugterra is that it can destroy enemy bullets according to their level. An energy line bullet will usually be able to withstand one or a maximum of two enemy bullets. Players can take advantage of this defense mechanism to block enemy attacks. Whenever a projectile fires, its damage is proportional to its size, and it can consume a variety of smaller bullets.
Any player will need to pay attention to this mechanic, and it enables players to select appropriate attack methods in each level. With time, you will be able to own more slugs, and each slug will be divided by its star rating. You will also find materials to increase the slug level each time you open the chest. Based on that you can upgrade the power of the slug to help you defeat the enemy.
At first glance, this might appear to be a casual action role-playing game. It's not true. The gameplay in Slugterra: Slug it Out 2 does not include any action. Rather than solving match-3 puzzles, you'll solve match-two puzzles.
You must arrange symbols of the same shape and color in a horizontal or vertical row for each battle. Performing an action or attacking monsters will earn you points for every three symbols. Symbol matching determines attack damage. Therefore, whether to win or lose depends on the move and the arrangement of the factors on the board.
You should also collect health and defense symbols to neutralize your opponent's attacks. Boosters can help you get through some dangerous situations in the game. In spite of this, you can only use these items when they are absolutely necessary, as they are limited.
In this game, the graphics are carefully crafted and detailed, while the colors and perspectives are suited for people of all ages. It is a puzzle game on mobile phones that has a relatively simple layout and content.
The first time I played Slugterra: Slug it Out 2, it reminded me of a Power Ranger cartoon. There will be fierce and dramatic battles that you will feel like you are part of.
